(Rated PG) Hoping again for an explosion and again getting disappointed, I pop a yam into the microwave and it just cooks very, very well. Thankfully for your sake, I cut out most of the microwaving but left in enough to show that this was a long, tedious, and boring episode. Produce items have generally been a disappointment on my show with an exception being the grape I did way back in season one and the coconut and the garlic were pretty cool, but other than that, I've been continually let down by fruits and vegetables, hoping for an explosion but instead getting a very boring episode. At least the next episode will certainly be an exciting one. Season 8 of Microwave Me is filmed, edited, hosted, and produced by Matthew Villani, also known as Captain Microwave, using different microwaves over the course of a season, this time an Emerson named Li.
(Rated PG) Happy Christmas to all of my Microwave Me fans! This is your reward for being such good viewers, a proper Christmas special! Last year, I never gave you one (just the hot chocolate thing), so I always considered the Christmas lights I did in February to be the REAL Christmas special (albeit a little late), so this year I give you microwaving Father Christmas (more popularly known as Santa Claus), but I added a lighter to serve as the pack on his back. I'm going to be doing a lot of Christmas-themed episodes, actually, this one's just the special. I'm also doing a Christmas tree, some other kind of fairy lights, and even what may be the best one of all, microwaving fire. No, I don't mean a small lit object again or even the charcoal, I mean I'll build a fire then microwave that. With this one, I think the results were cool but once again, due to the microwave shutting off early like with other experiments, pure wasted potential. But still, when this experiment was awesome, it was AWESOME, even if it was a bit on the brief side. Some might think me a Scrooge or Grinch for microwaving Santa, but admit it, most people beyond their early 20's and/or with kids of their own have wanted to do this to the fat guy in the big red suit (and no, I don't mean Ronald McDonald). Anyways, I hope all of you have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year and enjoy this special episode, because I made it for all of my fans and hope you all enjoy it. If this only has a few views by Christmas, I'm going to be very disappointed. But I know at least one of you will share this with your friends, so maybe it'll go semi-viral like the gummy bears were for awhile.

(Rated G) This is THE BEST video of microwaving a snow globe to be found online. Others may have had the glass shatter but with this, the top launched itself off of the snowglobe, shot the door open and launched itself at the camera. The visibility of the actual microwaving might be poor, but you can still see the snow globe and even the stuff inside of it get frothier and frothier until bOOm! This is to date one of the coolest explosions on Microwave Me, not the loudest or most impressive, but what happened is definitely interesting. One of my best Yuletide episodes to date, a Christmas classic! Hopefully it gets a lot of views like my other specials have.
I've been wanting to microwave a snowglobe all year, I finally found one at the dollar store and figured it'd be perfect to blow up in my microwave. It did not disappoint. When I saw this done on another microwave show, I'd expected the glass to unceremoniously break and launch the door open. But the way it shot off like a missile was incredibly cool. Again, I know visibility isn't the best, but let's be honest, if you're like me, you care more about the explosion than the actual microwaving. The snow globe looked almost unchanged through the entire microwaving except for the water getting a bit frothier. The explosion, however, was one of the best that just booted the door open. This won't be the last door-opening explosion of season 8, however. I've got some real neat ones coming up fairly soon that'll be REALLY fun.

(Rated PG-13) I've been asked to microwave a mouse on different occasions, so I finally did it. My old mouse wasn't working that well, so I replaced it and decided to fulfill a longtime fan request by microwaving the old mouse. I took the batteries out, so it wasn't a live mouse, but I honestly really don't think it would have made much of a difference. To be honest, I was incredibly disappointed with the final results. I was hoping it'd catch fire, but all it did was fill the microwave up with smoke, and worse yet, the microwave shut off at the end, so even if I wanted to add more time, I couldn't. That's why the beep was cut short. It did spark a little bit at times, though. This is probably one of my more disappointing experiments I'd done, since I was looking forward to this for awhile. I guess we needed at least one season 8 fail to balance out the cool - wait, we had Mr. Bubble and the sweet potato, so there was no excuse for this. Anyways, I microwaved a mouse. Hope you enjoy it, and I hope the TV Remote I do soon is better than this was.

(Rated PG) What's this? Another Christmas episode? Yep, that's right. I micorwaved a Christmas tree for this one. I actually wanted to microwave a Christmas tree as the original premise for the Microwave Me 2013 Christmas special, but at least I got around to microwaving a Christmas tree before Christmas actually came. And for this, I had to use my big Kenmore microwave, Jareth, because he was the only microwave big enough to fit the tree in without snapping it in half, and had I done that, it just would have looked like I was microwaving some brush and it would have lost its coolness factor. This was an 18" Christmas tree, about the limit of what would comfortably fit inside of a microwave. Since it's so dark inside of Jareth, I wrapped some lights around the tree to provide a light show while the tree was microwaving. I had hoped it would catch fire better, but it did catch fire towards the end somewhat, resulting in a well-done Christmas tree. It also, however, resulted in one of the worst smells on my show, only behind the CFL, the glow sticks, and the blender. Hopefully all of you have a happy Christmas and enjoy spending the time with family and you enjoy my Christmas tree microwaving. I've done so many Christmas-themed episodes that I should probably set the season 8 clip show to the Nutcracker suite. While this isn't my best episode, I still thought it was an enjoyable outing, especially when there was some plasma under the tree, it was like some Christmas presents that resulted in a well done tree.
I apologize for the fact that I couldn't get around to doing the dry ice bomb episode, but it had already sublimated by time I got everything set up. I promise, though, I will find a way to do it eventually, and I will get at least one really cool experiment in for season 8, guaranteed. A lava lamp perhaps? Or maybe some road flares? Or a large firework? Something like that. But there's also going to be even more Christmas themed episodes, like some kind of annoying singing holiday toy from K-Mart. Season 8 of Microwave Me is filmed, edited, hosted, and produced by Matthew Villani, also known as Captain Microwave, using different microwaves over the course of a season, this time a huge 1984 Kenmore BEAST of a microwave named Jareth.
